Recent Publications

Dr. Tim Ford, has written a new 
textbook entitles, Separable Algebra.
Due to be published on October 20, 2017,
this book presents a comprehensive
introduction to the theory of separable
algebras over commutative rings.
Azumaya algebras, the henselization of
local rings, and Galois theory are
rigorously introduced and treated.
Essential connections are drawn
between the theory of separable
algebras and Morita theory, the theory
of faithfully flat descent, cohomology,
derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices,
maximal orders, and class groups.

Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree and to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree. Either of these two programs, with suitably chosen electives, constitutes an excellent background for a wide range of careers, in particular as a systems analyst, mathematics teacher, actuary and statistician.

Students interested in advanced or professional degrees, for example in the medical sciences, benefit from rigorous training in mathematics. Furthermore, the Bachelor of Science degree program is designed to prepare students for graduate work in mathematics and related areas.

Student learning outcomes for the B.A. and B.S. degree programs are discussed further, here.
